  • Can you see teeth erupting?
    That's awful early for teething

  • An age appropriate dose of Tylenol. Ask your pediatrician for correct dosing. You can also try a cold washed carrot. Just be careful so he doesn't choke on it. Are you sure it's teething and not an ear infection? Two months seems a bit young for cutting teeth. I know it's entirely possible, but still seems too young. With the weather the way it is now I'd be thinking ear infection and taking baby to the doctor to be sure.

  • I doubt it's teething. It's probably gas. PLEASE speak to her Pediatrician before giving anything to a 2 month old. Make sure to burp her often.

  • No such thing as too early for teething; they can be born teething. If there's drooling or gnawing o hands, it's teething.

    Hyland's Teething tablets can help, too.

  • Wet a washcloth in cold water, wring it out, and put it in the freezer briefly. Give it to your baby so she can chew on it. Keep one with her and a fresh one getting cold in the freezer at all times. But if the baby gets a temperature or diarrhea with the pain, it's worth a call to the pediatrician, just in case.

  • The teething tables or the drops are really helpful and all natural. I would try those first.

  • That's pretty early for teeth. Are you sure that's what it is? You can see the teeth?

  • Just be warned (and YES they CAN start teething this early, Tori was teething at this age!), just because they start teething early doesn't mean they'll get their teeth early. Tori, as I said, started teething at 2 months. I even saw the evidence, then it went away, and she didn't get her first tooth (which happened to be 3 teeth all at once) at 7 or 8 months old!
